After my last posted on recyclable lunch boxes, I finally decided on this one, the Easy Lunch Box from EasyLunchBoxes.com. This is something I didn't mention in my previous post, but one that a reader suggested.
These came in a pack of four for $14 and you cannot beat that price. They also look reasonably easy to close and the kids can pick a regular lunch box to put them in. Win, win, win!! Thank you Jacque for the the suggestion! I ordered them today. Find a link to this lunch box solution...here.
**Update** I got them in the mail today and they are WAY sturdier than I thought they would be. The colors are really nice as well (lime green, bright orange, an eggplant purple and a dark aqua color). They fit nicely into a standard sized lunch box , although not the ones that have the separate compartment on the bottom. I was a little worried that our bread would not fit into the large compartment, as we use whole wheat bread that is a little larger than average, but it fit perfectly!
